Guy Friends Are An Essential

Guy Friends Are The Best Friends

Guy friends are a necessity to life.


Having different types of friends is an important component of everyone's life. Every relationship you've built throughout the years brings something specific to your life. You have the friend who you will hit up if you need a shoulder to cry on, the one who is always down for an adventure, the person who is the best at holding a conversation and of course, the person who has known you the longest.

Each friendship has it's uniqueness and is different from any other. However, one of the biggest differences in friendships is between guy friends and girlfriends. While your girls are always there for you no matter what and they are your ride or dies, guy friendships are some of the most fun ones you'll ever have. As long as it is strictly friends, these friendships can give you tons of insight and advice on various topics that a girl perspective wouldn't be able to give.

Guys care, but they don't always care about the drama. You can rant to them about anything and they are there to listen, and they're loyal so you never have to worry about them spreading rumors. It's nice to know that there is someone in your life who isn't always going to be starting something and creating situations that are unneeded. They're there for the actual friendship part and will remain to be there for you.

Guys aren't as picky. You can call up any of your guy friends and odds are, if they're free, they are down to do whatever. Need a gym buddy? Someone, to accompany you while you do errands? Craving a bite to eat? Send a quick text to your best guy pal and not only will they provide company, but also constant entertainment.

Guys have a different perspective than girls, so they can definitely provide advice that some of your other friends wouldn't be able to. Have a question about boys? Who better to ask than a boy?! You can still be yourself around the guys and be treated as equal. Sure, there will be plenty of times where inside jokes get brought up or there will be a conversation you won't understand, but guy friends are a necessity for everyone's life. Girlfriends get you and have been through it all with you, but the fun and memories you get from your guy friends are different and deserved to be valued just the same.

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
